Polo — This car is great, it small yet has all the room one might need, its low on fuel consumption, has little problems if u regularly maintain it, great handling and stability. The only dislike about it, is that its only 1000cc, so u can either drive having fun or the ac on.

Pros: stability, handling is great

Cons: 1000cc only

Perfect Little Car For Nipping Round Town! — this is the perfect little car for nipping around town! It is really cheap to run, low insurance costs and low car tax costs. It's got all the electric extras that a car needs and also has good alarm. its interior is a little dated but is nearly all black so not that bad!

Pros: Cheap to run!

Cons: Black - so gets dirty easy!

Get A Minter — Nippy for a 1.4 & the stance is the best thing about it. Style is good, especially with the sports bumpers, just needs a few different touches to make it stand out. Bounces along nicely now its on the floor. Be careful with the right foot or it can become a heavy drinker, mainly due to the small fuel tank. Hate the gearbox but then I always knew it was a weak point.

Pros: Base for modifying, handling, interior & exterior build quality,

Cons: Gearbox

It's A Friggin Tank Baby, Yeah! — Interior: starburst wrappers and several pairs of shoes create a cheerful atmosphere. Exterior styling: ignore the very small rust patches, and battered rims, and it's a work of art. Handling...can take a roundabout at forty and only drift slightly :D. Performance: it's lasted this long hasn't it? Overall impression: squint a bit, and it looks like a Golf :D

Pros: As long as I don't open the window, I can't hear it rattle!

Cons: Sounds a bit rattly
